5 GENERAL INFORMATION Russian business takes active part in the global initiatives in the area of corporate social responsibility, primarily the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The official presentation of the UNGC in Russia took place in late 2001 during a round-table discussion organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia and by the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RUIE) in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and other UN agencies in Russia. In 2008, the Russian participants of the UNGC exercised considerable structural and organisational changes, aimed at enhancing the efficiency of work. During the meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon top managers of Russian businesses declared their intention to launch the UN Global Compact Network in Russia (hereafter UNGC Network Russia or Network). On December 17, 2008, the UNGC Network Russia was established at the general meeting of the Russian UNGC participants. The meeting adopted a Statute which regulates operations of the Network. The meeting approved priority activities for and elected the Steering Committee. On December 2, 2010, at the annual general meeting the UNGC Network Russia participants approved signing of a Joint European based Global Compact Local Networks Declaration of the Russian UNGC participants. The number of the Russian UNGC participants is growing fast and in April 2012 has reached 57.

The Chairperson is elected by the members of the Steering Committee by the majority of votes. The Chairperson of the Steering Committee has two deputies from the Steering Committee: a representative of RUIE and a representative of UN in Russia (UNDP). The permanently functioning executive office of the UNGC Network Russia is its Secretariat, supervised by the Steering Committee.
